Our Home Burnt Down

Hi everyone our home burnt down on Wed 10/18/17. Luckily no one was home at the time and no one was hurt, but the house is unlivable and we only have a handful of clothes they let us grab right after. Red cross helped us and provided us $670 for hotel,  food, clothing and toiletries but that only goes so far for a family of 4. We habe nothing and have to rebuild from the ground up. We also now have to find a new place to go, which means first months rent and deposit all over again all while paying for a hotel to live in...any help you could provide no matter how big or small would be a blessing. The fire investagor cane out yesterday and determined the fire was sparked by a hot cole  falling below the hearth causing it to spark. A fire under the fire place and then going up the wall and through the attic. Luckly it didnt happen while we were sleeping cause the kids would of never made it out. The heat from the fire in their room melted their sheets to their beds and pillows. Please i ask for any help you can provide to help us get back on our feet. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
